Subject: The Weekend that Changed My Life
Subject: Possibly THE Greatest Moment in Grateful Dead History involved me....
The first set starts off with a great Hell In A Bucket followed by Sugaree and thumpin' Just A Little Light. Jerry looked & sounded good and Brent was in full throat. Friend Of The Devil was next and although not one of my fave Dead tunes I still was enjoying the moment.
As FOTD wound down, John uttered the sentence that would change the world of the Grateful Dead forever: "We're so close", he said, "Maybe if we yell a song out they'll play it".....and that was all I needed.
I quickly thought "OK Jerry is singing, Brent has sung, Bobby is up and they haven't done a Cowboy or Dylan song yet...." The song ended, nice applause and Bobby was adjusting the knobs on his guitar when...from somewhere...it just came out of me..."MEMPHIS BLUES! MEMPHIS BLUES BOBBY, MEMPHIS BLUES!"
He looked up from his guitar towards me and pointed at 2 other people before he leveled his finger and eyes at me. John said, "SHIT HE HEARD YA!!!" and Phil said to Bobby, "Wanna do it?" and Bobby nodded and said "Okay". The unmistakable bass line began and everyone surrounding me mobbed me, patting me on the back and screaming encouragement.
"Well the ragman he draws circles, up and down the block..." and away we went. I sang every word to myself and thought about the zillions of people that have said to their friends "I called that tune" and hell I really DID!
Rousing finish to the song and the set and halftime saw me swarmed by people shaking my hand. When they came out for the second set we yelled our thanks to Phil and Bobby and they waved back.
It's been downhill ever since but at least I'm enjoyin' the ride!
Subject: Moonlight Over Miami....
This first night was very much "Florida Dead". Lots of bright neon colors, a tropical sounding Playin'... all in all a very nice show.
NOTHING could have prepared us for what was to come the second night....
Subject: On the Review (Again)
But I disress, 1st set highlights: Sugaree, FOTD and a sweet Deal (total Jerry fest). 2nd set: Playin>UJB>Playin and Truckin. Overall there's lots of kind and minimal schwag.
